Eat By the Clock
Breakfast might consist of a packet of oatmeal and small piece of fruit. The mid-morning meal could be carrots dipped in hummus and low-fat string cheese. For lunch, try half a can of tuna on a bed of lettuce with four whole-grain crackers for one small meal. Single-serving canned vegetables and fruits make portioning easy. Be sure to include some lean protein, which sends signals to your brain, telling it you're full. Adding fiber to your small meal ensures regularity, plus it fills your stomach with bulk and satisfies hunger. Get creative with your small meals and stoke the fire of your metabolism!
